Loop of the Grivò stream before climbing to the "Dei Zuc" castle and then to the Cucagna castle. Two castles assigned by the Patriarch Popone of Aquileia to the Auspergh Counts of Carinthia. The first one is from 1248 and the top one from 1027 was built by the same Counts who later expanded it in 1300.
They are 2 of the 10 or 11 Castles ranging from Nimis to Natisone (from Cregneu to Biaicis) that's why the Roman numeration.
You arrive and take the trail tour to the Church of San Rocco for medieval paths!
